I am driving from Taos thru ABQ to Flagstaff for the 9/13 - 9/19 group. I don't know if carpooling from ABQ would work for you sisters, but let me know if you are interested to discuss. I could drive. Also, I am looking for a roommate.

Mary Klein Aug 31, 2015 at 02:36 AM

My sister and I are driving in to Flagstaff from Albuquerque for the Sep. 13-19 group. Mary Klein and Margaret Rabiner coming west from very damp Florida. Looking forward to meeting all and to having cooler weather.

My wife, Paula and I, Joe, are flying from OH to AZ -- will see Gran Canyon and sites near Flagstaff prior to the RS program. We are fairly new to the SW but have found some of the suggested readings very informative.

Looking forwqard to meeting you. Margaret and I are originally from Cincinnati, so we speak Ohioan fluently! I am sure you will relish the difference of the Southwest particularly in the colors of the landscape. Hopefully, the monsoon rains will be abating for our visit. Safe journeys!

Roberta Klein Aug 15, 2015 at 10:25 AM

We are currently first on the waitlist for the Oct. 11 trip. Does anyone know the maximum group size for this trip?

Marge Watson Aug 14, 2015 at 10:36 PM

Anyone on the Oct. 4 trip from The Bay Area of CA? I'm flying out of Oakland to Phoenix.
Joseph Konen Aug 15, 2015 at 07:08 AM

Marge, Paula and I are flyingfrom Cleveland to Phoenix and taking the Arizona Shuttle to Flagstaff on 10 SEP. We will see some sites, go to Grand Canyon (SAT) and then join tour on Sunday. After the tour we will take Arizona Shuttle (1:30) back to Phoenix. This will be our first RS and our first learning about the Puebloan peoples. We are enjoying the suggested readings.
Marge Watson Aug 15, 2015 at 03:37 PM

what books do you recommend?
Joseph Konen Aug 16, 2015 at 07:59 AM

Above all, I liked HOUSE OF RAIN by Craig Childs ... it seemed to humanize the discussion about the Ancient Pueblans by giving his journey to report the story.
Marge Watson Sep 22, 2015 at 05:53 PM

I am currently reading it, thanks for the recommendation Joseph.

Joseph Konen Jul 26, 2015 at 08:53 PM

Paula and Joe -- We are from Cleveland, OH and will be on the September 13-19 Pueblo Heritage Tour (Our first RS).
We are looking forward to interacting with fellow participants.

Help! I've signed up for October 4-10 and am looking into flights from/to Boston. However, I find the instructions for taking the shuttle plane between Phoenix airport and Flagstaff very confusing. Specifically, what is the relationship between Shuttle 1, Shuttle 2, and Van Go? Is there only one shuttle flight per day that goes from the Phoenix airport to the appropriate Road Scholar hotel? Only one shuttle per day that returns us to the Phoenix airport? What if the latest flight from Phoenix to Boston leaves at 3:15 rather than 3:30? I'd like to use frequent flier miles (American Airlines) to pay my airfare, but the latest eligible American Airlines flight from Phoenix To Boston leaves at 3:15. I'll appreciate any clarification and advice. Anne Jones, Massachusetts
Marge Watson Aug 14, 2015 at 10:35 PM

I am also on Oct 4, and If you call Van Go they can tell you what flight time you should book. They were very helpful to me.
Anne Jones Sep 22, 2015 at 02:50 PM

Thanks, Marge. I've made a reservation with Arizona Shuttle, and it will all work out—I hope. See you in a couple weeks!
Marge Watson Sep 22, 2015 at 05:55 PM

We will be on the same shuttle then, Anne. What time do you arrive? I get in at 11am on Southwest
Margaret Davis Sep 28, 2015 at 04:01 PM

Larry and I are also on the Oct. 4 trip. We are flying from Orlando to Phoenix on 10/1 to attend the Nike Volleyball Tournament of Champions on 10/2-3. Turning in our rental car at the Phoenix airport on 10/4 and taking the Van Go Shuttle to Flagstaff. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

This will be my first trip, wondering what to pack and what the weather will be like
Mary Passage Apr 11, 2015 at 09:25 PM

Posted my review with a few tips on what to take. The end of March was nice weather but cool at night. Casual - jeans, chinos, long sleeves & light layers of fleece or jacket/ sweaters to layer were the order of the day. Part of the trip is high elevation so it can be windy & you do need sunscreen, hat, water bottle, & good comfortable shoes. I took binoculars & was glad I did for the cliff houses & art.
Marge Watson Aug 14, 2015 at 10:34 PM

thanks, I'm going in October, and they say similar things about clothing

Thank you Mary. I'll wait to hear about your experience this month. I don't blame you, we had a very cold year in Michigan this year but not as much snow as you had thankfully.
Mary Passage Mar 20, 2015 at 04:07 PM

I spent 3 winters in Kalamzoo while at K College - not balmy at all!
